I am pleased as Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster to serve as one of your Geeks OUT Contributing Editors and Board Members!  You can hold me partially responsible for A Bloody Mouthful, Geeks OUT's very own The Walking Dead recap that analyzes the series through a queer/feminist/Chicana prism.  Covering all kinds of geektastic events, from Bent-Con to geeky musicals, also falls within my wheelhouse.  As if all that wasn't enough, you also get the benefit of my geek-centric legal acumen and my vociferous criticism of burning issues in the nerdverse.

I also write, create, and horde zines - my babies include Cerebral Succubus, The Masochistic Mixologist's Recipe Book, and The Arc of an Anatomical Heart.  I'm also a member of a zine collective, Zineworks, which spreads the gospel of zines by tabling at zine and community events, putting on workshops for the young, old and everyone in between, and teaching about the history of zines.  

I'm a recovering lawyer, one foot in library school, and now a comics industry professional.  

I'm also chomping at the bit to get my next tattoo - the frontrunner being one that incorporates Man Ray's Le Violon d'Ingres and two wonderfully descriptive phrases from Neil Gaiman's American Gods (one of my all-time favorite novels), but the double ourobouros of The Neverending Story looks like it just might pull ahead and take the lead.

What about glbt panels with no bisexuals or Trans folks? What about moderators who make biphobic comments? I'd check yourself, geeksout, before you throw shade...

Aria, I am so happy you liked it. I don't write nearly often enough, so when I do, I try to make it worth it.

I'm totally here for this brave new world. And I think Kelly Sue and Matt are the perfect people to bring the revolution. 

I still wish we could get some of their Marvel stuff, though. A Hawkeye show based on Matt's Hawkeye is the series we need and the series we deserve! lol
